Ahead of his concert livestreamed from the Djanogly Recital Hall on Thursday 11 March, 7pm, Abel Selaocoe discusses music making with Postgraduate Music student Amber Frost and Lakeside's Head of Music Programmes, Catherine Hocking.

South African cellist Abel Selaocoe is redefining the parameters of the cello. He moves seamlessly across a plethora of genres and styles, from collaborations with world musicians and beatboxers, to concert performances and solo classical recitals. Abel combines virtuosic performance with improvisation, singing and body percussion, and has a special interest in curating recital programmes that highlight the links between Western and non-Western musical traditions, with view to helping classical music reach a more diverse audience.
